In an era of US and Get Out, Them has a similar vibe of creepiness and I’m definitely in for the ride. From creator Little Marvin and executive producer Lena Waithe, Them will be a limited anthology series that explores terror in America, with the first season set in the 1950s, centring on a Black family who move from North Carolina to an all-white Los Angeles neighbourhood during the period known as The Great Migration.
While there, the family’s home becomes ground zero where malevolent forces, next-door and otherworldly, threaten to taunt, ravage and destroy them.
Them stars Deborah Ayorinde, Ashley Thomas, Alison Pill, Shahadi Wright Joseph, Melody Hurd and Ryan Kwanten, we’ve just added the brand-new trailer (22/3/21) today and the teaser is just below that….
Looks like another Amazon attempt to show that all Whites are racists.
No it isn’t, it’s a deeply psychological series that raises issues on many fronts, including the reality of that era.
You can’t deny that time in history was particularly fractious and it’s important to acknowledge, discuss and learn. To take it personally is simply a denial of truth and, I personally, don’t think that’s a healthy way to live, learn or develop.
